We paddled on, passing a series of lovely wooden houses, gardens, children playing and all kinds of boats tied up to little piers. The islands are rocky, covered in trees and grass and the shoreline is often fringed with reeds. We cruised through all this at a good pace, never feeling tired.
I have therefore come to the conclusion that it doesn't really matter which one you pick. Both guarantee a great and eye-opening experience. You can always go travelling after university, just like you can always go to university after travelling. If you want to do both, you merely have to decide on the order in which you wish to do it.
Are you an avid reader and also looking for some inspiration to travel around the world? Then you should dig yourself deep in to these five books. The...
Already being described by deliriously happy customers as one of the best resorts in the world - despite only opening last summer - the second you arrive at the Mandarin Oriental Bodrum you know you're in nirvana.
A family has suffered an unbearable loss and Thomas Cook is teetering on the edge of destruction. This is not a situation that will disappear for either side. The only way to try to rebuild Thomas Cook's reputation at this point is to come clean; for the CEO to stand up and say I made a terrible mistake. I am very sorry. And resign.
Women wanting to travel alone shouldn't be made to feel held back by fear. I've put together a list for the best of female solo travel...
A trip to Cappadocia offers the perfect break from the vibrant, frenetic city of Istanbul. So next time you're thinking about booking a holiday to Turkey, skip the resorts, and go on a Cappdocian adventure!

I've been living in London as an American expat for just over four months now, and my experiences so far remind me of what it was like becoming a parent for the first time...
Dear Lizzie, You are 18 right now and probably sitting in your trackies stressing about uni work and when you are next going to get to see your long distance boyfriend. As much as you feel like you don't, you really do have a lot going for you.

I'm trying to practice a meditation/hypnotherapy technique I learned a few years back to stop myself panicking and hopefully avoid another dose of ketamine on top of the morphine and tramadol I've already been pumped with. It involves visualising yourself in your 'happy place'.
